It works almost anywhere!

Aussies Abroad works everywhere that Australians love to travel. So, whether you're on a long weekend in Bali, catching up with mates in London, or exploring exotic locales such as Bali, Aussies Abroad will help you instantly get in touch with other Aussies.

You might be surprised just who you bump into. Probably your next-door neighbour, or a work colleague. Or your cousin!


Helping Aussies help Aussies!

We all know that communicating with strangers can be full of hassles - strange languages are confusing, and different cultural customs are either off-putting or morally suspect! Don't let foreigners spoil your overseas fun!

Aussies Abroad puts you in touch with other Aussies, so that you can have new experiences while staying firmly in your comfort zone.

Never blend in again!

When travelling overseas, it's important that everyone knows you're an Aussie. But sometimes the locals are standing too far away, or there are just too many of them to speak to personally.

With your Aussies Abroad stubby holder, lanyard and Aussie flag/cape, you'll stand out loud and proud! The lanyard also helps you remember your own name after a big night on the piss.

Testimonials

When I got my spine crushed during the Running of the Bulls, I thought my Spanish holiday was over. Aussies Abroad helped me get back on my feet! Metaphorically, of course. I’ll be in a wheelchair for the rest of my life.
— Trevor, Bunbury WA
I got a bad case of the shits in Phuket and had to spend five days hunched over a toilet. Aussies Abroad helped me find that toilet.

Getting arrested for desecrating a sacred site isn’t fun on your own. Aussies Abroad helped me find travellers with a sense of humour, unlike the people of Tibet.
— Steveo, Perth WA
Europe is rich with history and culture. It’s also really dirty. It’s nice to be able to complain about that with my fellow Aussies.
— Jayden, Manly NSW
When I found out that other countries had indigenous people too, I used Aussies Abroad to share the fascinating news!

FAQs

 

How much does the service cost?

Aussies Abroad is absolutely free! We won't charge you now or ever!

The app will seriously chew through your data though, so expect some serious bill shock if you use roaming. We recommend relying on the free wifi at McDonald's and Starbucks as much as possible. It's win-win, because they also offer some of the best meal options in other countries.

Is it safe to use?

Travelling overseas is full of dangers. Using the app is one of the smartest things you can do to stay safe, as you'll spend your time interacting with other Aussies rather than suspicious foreigners.

Do I still need to carefully plan my overseas trip?

No. The app essentially allows you to visit anywhere overseas in blind ignorance. On arrival at your destination, the app will locate a nearby Aussie, and they'll take care of all the arrangements.

How did Aussies Abroad begin?

Vance Shriller and Dean Osman were two mates who loved the idea of travelling overseas. But they were scared off by stories of terrorism, Bali belly, and the threat of getting ripped off by street grocers. As a result, they never boarded a plane.

As time passed, and family responsibilities and work commitments got in the way, they realised they'd missed their opportunity to ever travel overseas! Working out of their parents' garage, they developed an app that would allow other Aussies to avoid the mistakes they had made.
